Poor visibility and rain stopped play early on Day 1 of the Ballantine’s Championship. Jean-Baptiste Gonnet, Kieran Pratt, Johan Edfors, Gi-whan Kim and Matthew Baldwin are the early leaders in the clubhouse on 5 under Par. We analyse how they did it.

Matthew BALDWIN -5

Matthew Baldwin fired seven birdies during his round of 67. The 27 year old Englishman hit 7/14 fairways, 15/18 greens in regulation and he took just 27 putts. One of the stand-out stats of the day was his Genworth Putts per GIR at 1.533, which was achieved through a combination of great approach play and quality putting.

Johan Edfors was excellent from tee to green over the first day. Looking at his Genworth Statistics, the 37 year old Swedish golfer hit 11/14 fairways and 16/18 greens in regulation, but interestingly not one of his six birdies came on the Par 5 holes.
